PRLog - May 26, 2011 - DENVER -- DETROIT — General Motors said it will expand its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant, where the next-generation Chevrolet Impala will join the Volt and the redesigned Malibu in production in calendar year 2013.

A week ago, GM announced that it would idle the Detroit-Hamtramck plant for a month, beginning in June, as it phases out production of the Buick Lucerne and Cadillac DTS, boosts capacity for the 2012 Chevrolet Volt and Opel Ampera and prepares to add production early next year of the redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu.

In response to a query from Inside Line regarding the launch timing of the new Impala, a GM spokeswoman said, "We are not confirming model year at this time."

But industry sources say the next-generation Impala is slated to go into production in calendar year 2013 as a 2014 model. It is expected to be built on a stretched version of GM's midsize Epsilon architecture that underpins the 2013 Malibu, and could share some underbody components with the upcoming Cadillac XTS.

The Detroit-Hamtramck plant news is the latest installment in GM's ongoing plan to invest $2 billion in 17 plants in eight states. GM said it would invest $69 million in tools and equipment "to support the next-generation Impala," in addition to the previously announced $121 million for production of the new Malibu.
